The Angel Tree toy drive is an important part of our parish’s St. Vincent de Paul Christmas Hamper project. Last year, over 122 hampers which included 170 children were distributed to families within our parish area. Each child received at least two toys. The toys contributed from our Parish and Schools were fundamental to our overall success.
Our society faces a dilemma every year for those children ages 7 to 15. Most gifts are for the smaller children. To help us meet the needs in this age group, we would suggest:
• Gift cards from Walmart, Movie Theatres and Local Malls are extremely useful.
Please write the amount on the card.
- No Computer electronics. We do not know what the family has in regards to computers and games. If any item requires batteries, could you also supply them with the item.
- We prefer no clothes for children. We are not aware of the sizes of the children.
- Please DON’T wrap the gifts as we send the gifts unwrapped with the hampers and let the parents see the gifts and if they are appropriate for the child.
We will be collecting items in our box at the back of the church. Gift card can be dropped off in the office from November 14 – December 12
Thank you for your support. God Bless
